Do you have any routines for playing sound from a mixed CD-ROM or Audio-CD while my programming is running ?
Please try, to give me some example sources.

Thanx, Roger Bieri

You should just send the play command to the CD driver.
DOn't know out of my head what the exact commands are , but if you could wait till' after the weekend I send you some example source ...

Berox - You should not lock question that you don't have the answer for it.

Omsec, You should send the "Play Audio" request. The request is sent that way:
  A. Make a table that look like this:
       00 Lenght of Table
       01 Subunit (=1)
       02 Command
       03 Status (2 bytes)
       05 nothing (8 bytes)
       0D Mode (=0)
       0E StartSector (4 bytes)
       12  NumberOfSectors (4 bytes)
     The numbers are the address in table (Hex).
     This table will be used to play, stop or resume audio.

  B. To play audio:
       Command=84h
       Lendth=14h
     To stop audio:
       Command=85h
       Length=0Dh
       (fields 0Dh-12h are not used).
     To resume audio:
       Command=88h
       Lenght=0Dh
       (fields 0Dh-12h are not used).

  C. Now call the interrupt:
      asm;
        MOV AX,1510h
        MOV CX,4             ; CDROM drive (E:=4)
        LES BX,PTable ; pointer to the table
        INT 2Fh
      end;

To get the starting sector of a track you should send a request to the CD device-driver, using interrupt 21 service 4402h

That was all the story.

I think those points are belong to me...
Berox - I don't think this is the way that "Experts-Exchange" should work.

Next time, if you don't have an answer to a question, DO NOT lock the question. If anyone will act like this, no one will answer the questions.
